>> alisyn: are you going to be purchase ago dog today? >> steve: no, but perhaps i should get some mouth wash. [ laughter ] those are beautiful. we'll talk to lisa peterson from the akc in the after the show show. eric and ali. >> alisyn: see you tomorrow on "fox & friends". aren't we on this flu. fox news alert on a friday, everybody. chances are you know someone affected by this nasty wave of flu. the government calls it the outfrak -- outbreak a classic epidemic. we're waiting from the centers for disease control. martha: good morning, everybody. i'm martha maccallum. this is the story. the flu is spreading across much of the country. 41 states reported high numbers of infection. look at that spreading all over the place. massachusetts is one of the hardest hit areas. boston, one of the nation's largest cities. it is a big concern. bill: the vaccine supply already said to be running low. jonathan serrie live in atlanta where the cdc is head qaur ird. -- headquartered. is that the term, jonathan. >> reporter: cdc is staying away from epidemic. the flu is high in some states flu is at epidemic proportions. in other areas the cdc says the flu is at ebb and flow. it may be showing signs of diminishing in some regions such as portions of the south. they're not calling this a national epidemic. they say the ebb and flow is typical of flu seasons and they are going to update us around the numbers around 10:00 this morning. so they are still urging people to go out and get vaccinated because flu may continue to be with us for the weeks ahead, even in these areas where the flu appears to be easing up somewhat. they say that especially children, the elderly and people with underlying health conditions should get vaccinated, bill. bill: what about the vaccinations? has it prompted an uptick in those flu vaccinations? >> reporter: all the media coverage and anecdotal stories you may have heard from family and friends how bad this year's flu is prompted a lot of people to go out to their doctors and drug stores. that has created some reports of spotty, temporary shortages. so public health officials say that you should call ahead. make sure that your health provider is stocked with flu vaccine. if they're temporarily out call another provider because they likely are well-stocked. we checked in with a nurse at a local cvs minute clinic who said she has seen an increase in patients over the past couple weeks. listen. >> we're definitely seeing across the nation in our minute clinics. people are seeking out the flu vaccine, they are sick and being seen. we're doing our best to meet demands of the population here in the states. >> reporter: the question everyone wants to know, how effective is this year's vaccine? public health officials say it is a good match for the major viruses in circulation. the cdc is still crunching the numbers, based on preliminary evidence they're expected to announce later this morning the vaccine effectiveness is somewhere in the area of 60%. in other words, if you got this year's flu shot you are 60% less likely to get the flu this year. this is pretty typical of a typical vaccine for a typical flu season. far from perfect but public health officials say vaccination is still the most effective way to reduce your chances of getting the flu. bill: as you point out. we'll look forward to the update coming within the hour. jonathan serrie in atlanta, leading our coverage there. martha. martha: as we were saying massachusetts is very hard hit. the flu cases are way up there. hospitals and clinics are packed. people are looking for treatment are those last minute vaccines. >> i saw on the news last night that there was 18 deaths and that kind of freaks my family out. we looked up the clinics and this one was open for tonight. rather just it, be safe and be sick to take time off work and just miserable being sick. martha: good thinking. the experts say as bill was discussing with jonathan. it is not 100% if you get the flu vaccine but it is your best defense, your best shot. bill: when somebody gets it around here, we all feel it. martha: we all feel it. bill: come on, get better, come on back to work. there are new concerns though, we might be simply running out of the vaccine. the largest producer of the vaccine in the u.s. says it sold out in four of the six different doseages it makes, mostly due to high demand and companies reporting a shortage of the liquid form of tamiflu. that is used to slow or stop the symptoms of the flu. that drug can only taken the very first few days of flu-like symptoms. manufacturers warn of an imminent delay of shipment. >> here is context on the flu vaccine. manufacturers made 135 million doses of the flu shot for the 2012-2013 season. according to the cdc, about 128 million have already been distributed. 35 to 40% of population is vaccinated every year to prevent the flu virus. bill: the cost of the flu is shocking too if you think about the raw numbers. here in the u.s. alone annual direct costs estimated at $10.4 billion. that includes hospitalization, doctors visits, medications. additionally, up to 111 million work days are lost because of the flu alone. that is an estimated $7 billion a year in sick dice and lost productivity. if you're at home watching this and you've got it, get well soon. martha: the national rifle association is not very happy with the meeting they had yesterday with vice president joe biden. the nra says the talk was less about making kids and more about attacking the second amendment. the vice president says that he will make his recommendation to the president of what he thinks they should do on tuesday. >> there's bottom to be some common ground here to not solve every problem but diminish the probability that what we've seen in these mass shootings and --. martha: peter doocy on this live from the white house this morning. so, peter, why specifically was the nra so unhappy with sort of the tenor of that meeting? >> reporter: martha, because as you just said, from where the nra was sitting at that meeting, they feel that the focus was too much on what they describe as an agenda to attack the second amendment and not enough on keeping children safe and the nra president, david between, who had a chance to sleep on what his representative at that meeting told him, went on a d.c. radio station this morning and why he thinks the biden-led task force will fail. >> we feel very strongly that gun crime needs to be prosecuted vigorously and that is not happening under this administration. the president and the vice president on the other hand, blame everything on firearms. and we know enough and we have a little experience with firearms and what works and what doesn't work to think what they're talking about is essentially cosmetic, feel-good legislation that will not prevent another newtown, much as they would like to do that. >> reporter: vice president biden said yesterday that he thinks a great deal can be done to reduce gun violence without impinging on the rights guaranteed by the second amendment but the nra clearly, martha, sees things a little bit differently. martha: yeah, they clearly do and in all of the discussions about this, peter, everybody seems to feel that there are a number of sort of legs to this stool in terms of thinking about a solution. so the vice president has a couple more meetings on this today, right? >> reporter: he does. it's very complex. everyone acknowledges it is a very complex issue. today at 2:15 the vice president will host some representatives from the videogame industry. we haven't seen monday's schedule yet. since he told his boss, president obama, he will have the recommendations on his desk by tuesday this is likely one of the final meetings. the vice president said just about everyone he met so far agrees on one thing. >> i never quite heard as much talk about the need to do something about high-capacity magazines as i have heard spontaneously from every group that we've met with so far. >> reporter: the fact the vice president is meeting with some folks from silicon valley just one day after he met with representatives from the entertainment industry signals that this administration is not just focusing on guns and ammunition but also on the way that guns and ammunition are seen on the big screen and on computer screens. martha? martha: peter, thank you. peter doocy. bill: we are learning more information now about a shooting at a high school in taft, california. that is about 100 miles north of l.a. police say a 16-year-old student planned the attack on two students who he claims had bullied him. he took a shotgun belonging to his brother, opened fire at the school, injurying one student. then a teacher reportedly talked him into surrendering. today that teacher is being hailed as a hero. >> i first want to commend the teacher. i think he saved many lives today, his actions, his time, his ability of what he did in protecting the students there. >> the heroics of these two people, goes without saying to stand there and face someone that has a shotgun, who already discharged it and shot a student that says, speaks volumes for these two young men and what they may have prevented. they could have just easily tried to get out of the classroom and left students and they didn't and they knew not to let him leave that classroom with that shotgun and they took that responsibility on very seriously and we're very proud of the job they did. bill: this is north of l.a. the police are not releasing the suspect's name. they're still investigate the motive. taft, california. martha: the pentagon is bracing for some massive changes. defense secretary leon panetta says drastic cuts to the defense department were just delayed after the fiscal cliff and they are starting to get ready for what they know is coming down the pipeline over the next couple months. they will begin taking steps to freeze civilian hiring and to delay some contract awards, all of this if congress can not reach a deal on the final spending plan. as you remember they delayed the whole thing by about six weeks. so the pentagon is facing spending cuts of nearly $500 billion over a decade and an additional 110 billion in automatic spending cuts in military and domestic programs by early march. some asking why just defense? why not other areas like entitlements but that one is baked in the cake. bill: another story on related matter. we'll talk to stephen hayes in a moment on that spending. at the white house house today this will be an interesting meeting. president obama and afghan president hamid karzai talking about america's future role in the war in afghanistan. the state department says several topics on the agenda but top of the agenda, whether any u.s. forces will stay behind after the drawdown date that has been established for 2014. >> a full range of issues are going to be discussed. the economic transitions, regional integrations, support for the afghan reconciliation efforts, those will all be central themes. bill: u.s. commanders in afghanistan proposing keeping 6 to 15,000 u.s. troops after 2014 but officials say the president will be opening to pulling all of them out? a news conference scheduled for later this afternoon. we'll have live coverage here on the channel on that. some suggestions you get into negotiations say we'll all leave unless you get your act together. we'll see how that goes at white house. joint press conference. >> so a jam-packed show for you on this friday morning. first a kidnapped 5-year-old is found 19 years later. so where has this little boy been for all these years? the clue that led the police to him, an unbelievable story. bill: sure is. this is said it be the future of air travel and it is here but the federal government stepping up after props reported in some of boeing's new dreamliner jets. we'll tell you about what those problems are all about. martha: a teacher shocking students in the classroom. and outraging a community by desecrating the american flag as part of his class. we'll tell but the controversial lesson that has a south carolina teacher perhaps about to lose his job. >> he took the flag and he said that it was just a symbol of america and it was just a piece of cloth with colors on it. [ male announcer ] with over 50 delicious choices of green giant vegetables it's easy to eat like a giant... and feel like a green giant. ho ho ho green giant ho ho ho we asked total strangers to watch it for us. thank you so much. i appreciate it. i'll be right back. they didn't take a dime. how much in fees does your bank take to watch your money? if your bank takes more money than a stranger, you need an ally. ally bank. your money needs an ally. martha: this has been an interesting one to watch. some new developments in hobby lobby's fight over providing insurance coverage for the mourning after pill. the company's attorney now says they found a way to delay providing that coverage. they will shift the plan year for employees, delaying it by a few months while the company fights that mandate in court. hobby lobby is fighting the mandate on the grounds it violates the religious beliefs on their founder and ceo. bill: this could be a battle, a battle over the president's nomination for jack lew as treasury secretary. republican senator jeff sessions has become the first senator that vows to vote no on that nomination. white house spokesman jay carney with this comment just yesterday that got some attention about our out of control debt. >> most importantly, because deficit reduction is not a goal, a worthy goal unto itself this is all about making our economy stronger and making it more productive and allowing it to create even more jobs. i mean that is the most important thing when it comes to economic policy as far as the president's concerned. bill: okay. steve hayes, senior writer, "weekly standard", fox news contributor. interesting comment i think at a minimum. specifically on senator sessions, strong words. lew must never be treasury secretary. he calls outrage just testimony, testimony that he doctors false, that lew gave to the senate budget committee two years ago. there is baseline of information we need to share first of all. what is that about the testimony? >> well, i think the thing has senator sessions so upset that jack lew went before his committee and in effect said the president's budget was going to balance. the plain facts and easy math suggestions that it won't balance and everybody knows it won't balance that one of things that has others not just senator sessions upset, this is a way to highlight the spending more broadly. bill: to be clear on your view you think it is indisputable sessions was right and jack lew was wrong and lew misled congress in his testimony. explain. >> you can't make the argument, make the claim that the administration, that their budgets were in balance. it is preposterous both in the short term and long term by easy math. all you have to do is get out a calculator and it is clear the administration's budgets haven't balanced. if you look at the overall amount of debt added since january 20th of 2009, you're talking a number that is approaching $6 trillion or almost $20,000 per citizen in the united states. that hasn't been an administration that has been serious about spending or taken seriously this question of debt and deficits. bill: as you just heard from jay carney. >> right. bill: some would argue when you start comments, debt is not the biggest deal. it is getting economy going again. if we could do it in tandem, we would be flying through the roof. if jack lew is confirmed as treasury secretary, he will be treasury secretary at a time we debate yet again all these big fiscal issues and you believe there is opportunity for republicans on this. how? >> sure. if you look at what we're likely to be debating even before he is being confirmed, look at confirmation hearings likely in the next four to six weeks, what will we be talking about? we'll talk about this new fiscal cliff. we'll talk about the continuing resolution to continue to fund government. we'll be talking about lifting the debt ceiling a number about issues that the administration has to deal with immediately now on questions of spending and size and scope of government that will coincide with these confirmation hearings. there is no question in my mind that republicans are going to focus heavily on those issues with jack lew who has experienced at the office of management and budget before he became chief of staff to the president and wants to be elevated to treasury secretary. that will be the focus. i think they will try to frame him as really the face of the administration's handling of debt and deficits over the first term. bill: simple question in this too, what would you cut? where are your spending cuts? >> yeah. bill: put them on the table. how would you balance the budget? how would you get control of out of control debt? >> exactly. in particular, entitlement spending. we haven't had a proposal from the president, when timothy geithner who would be jack lew's predecessor if in fact confirmed was asked, what would you do on entitlements? he looked at paul ryan said, i don't know what we would do but we don't like your plan. that is not going to be a good enough answer for jack lew. bill: we'll get sessions on the air starting next week. we'll see who else is on his side. stephen hayes, thank you. >> thanks, bill. bill: in washington with us today. martha, what's next? martha: what's next is this. we're waiting for new numbers. they're expected to come out in the next hour or so to the extent of this deadly spread of the flu outbreak and there are some new questions whether enough is being done to protect schools with all this. we'll tell you the length of some schools are going to now to disinfect. bill: more than washing your hand, huh? if you saw a pair of men walking through your neighborhood carrying assault rifles what would you do? two guys exercising their second amendment rights here. >> we were educating, letting people know they can come up and talk to us. we're very friendly, said hi to people. we let people know that guns are not bad things. ♪ [ male announcer ] some day, your life will flash before your eyes. make it worth watcng. introducing the 2013 lexus ls. an entirely new pursuit.
